From DDOT:

The District Snow Team (Department of Public Works and the District Department of Transportation) will deploy about 230 plows citywide starting tonight at 11 pm. Forecasters predict rain Tuesday evening, followed by a rain/snow mix after 11 pm. Heavy, wet snow is expected to start falling in time for Wednesday’s am rush hour. The forecast calls for a total of six inches of snow and precipitation should end Wednesday night. Temperatures will hover in the low 30s.

“We may see heavy snow falling throughout Wednesday, so both am and pm rush hours will be critical periods for traffic safety,” said DPW Director William O. Howland, Jr. “Additionally, we urge commercial and residential property owners to clear their sidewalks of snow within 24 hours after the storm ends. While the Snow Team is taking care of the streets, we need property owners to handle the sidewalks so pedestrians can travel safely.”

Director Howland said that this storm probably not disrupt trash and recycling collection schedules, mechanical street sweeping will be suspended because the same employees who sweep the streets drive snow plows.
